I’ve recently become somewhat obsessed with the song I See Fire by Ed Sheeran. It’s a very powerful, emotional song and it just really gives me the feels. Like, really. It almost hurts, yet I just can’t resist listening to it over and over. It got me thinking.. I have a few songs like that, haunting ones that make me hesitate before pressing play because I know what effect they have on me. They make me dissociate and I get so melancholic. Listening to them is bittersweet, you know?
I’m not sure why I wanted to share this with you guys, I just do. So here are some songs that are wonderfully painful, to me:
Ed Sheeran – I See Fire (I also highly recommend the Kygo remix of this song!)
Empire of the sun – We are the people
Jimmy eat world – hear you me [Trigger warning: talk about dealing with a loved ones’ death]
EDIT : I forgot to mention.. When I was newly diagnosed with DDNOS, almost exactly one year ago, my psychologist suggested that I should work towards integration. I barely knew my alters at all, yet I was struck by such pain and grief, like someone dear to me was going to die. This is the song I listened and cried to on the train ride home.
Paramore – Future (I really love the instrumental part at the end)
Flyleaf – Arise (Again, I really enjoy the ending)
What songs give you the feels?
